1. Product Details
The cover of this release features a gradation of color a subtle but complete infusion of one element into another an almost imperceptible moment where A becomes B and both become more. And that is one way of thinking about the music in this release a piece composed in the mid-1950s and a 2018 re-working of that same piece. The original was composed by Kohei Amada and played by an ensemble in which the Japanese traditional instruments koto sho and taiko fuse perfectly with the Irish harp. The composition itself also melds Amada s traditional classical sensibilities and his knowledge of the deepest roots of Japanese music with his appreciation of new developments in both Japanese and Western music. Another element to consider here is the role of Amada s voice and lyrics fusing noh and other traditional elements with a modernity foreshadowing the rise of the singer-songwriter melding high tradition with folk impulses. This theme of gradation and infusion continues in the other piece of music on this release SUGAI KEN s revision of the original with its puzzling amalgamation of analog/digital acoustic/electric and performed/programmed with the various temporal and geographical elements of Amada s music melted and melded into the 21st century.
